Friday Bullets: What They Do

Hope. Pepper Haz It.

This week’s Friday Bullets are inspired by Sean Bonner, who said, “I’ve never had a good response to the question ‘what do you do?’ and have always felt that whatever I said would be either too modest and not actually explain anything, or too boastful and I’d feel like a douche.” His post is a great read for those of us who live lives and do things that aren’t easily categorized in little boxes.

That said, I went around to some L.A. bloggers to see what they say about what it is they do:

  • Aziz Ansari: On his approach to his character on “Parks & Recreation” “I watch the movie ‘There Will Be Blood’ with Daniel Day-Lewis’ commentary on and listen to what he did, and that’s the same technique I apply to my acting.” (He’s kidding)
  • Mar Vista Mom Sarah Auerswald on what she’s NOT doing anymore: “I had an epiphany about my life: it was truly being wasted doing volunteer work for that bunch of commie parents (the PTA) with their hidden agenda of corrupting our children’s minds, or for the freeloading students at our school. So I quit. Right then and there. And went out to get my toenails done.”
  • Celia of 5th and Spring writes that she’s been writing: “I was named a Film Independent Project:Involve Screenwriting Fellow, Class of 2010. You probably already know Film Independent (FIND) as the fine folks who bring you the Independent Spirit Awards and the Los Angeles Film Festival, this is one of their talent development programs.”
